We loved eating northern Indian food, and there are many to choose from in Kuala Lumpur. Saffron Restaurant is a suburban restaurant, about 5 minutes drive from my home. I took my colleagues and his family there for a treat.

It is rather an old establishment, owned by Billy - I think he used to be a MAS crew, and his mother does most of the cooking. Prices here are reasonable, portions are not big, so you can order plenty

They are closed on Sundays!!!

Favorite Dish: When you are seated they will take your drink orders. If you are game, try their lassi drinks - they are yoghurt type of drinks fruit flavoured. Meanwhile they will give you some finger snacks - free on the house. It is usually fried papadam crackers and comes with a minty yoghurt dip.

For starters - i usually have their mini chicken drummetes- wing fried and small fish cakes - koftas.

For chicken dish - the best would be their Murgh special, they are bite sized chicken pieces cooked in spices - a little spicy and delicious as opposed to butter chicken and other curreid chicken dishes.

I also liked simple fried fish with dhal, and also liked their dry lamb dish. There are lots of vegetable dishes i love here, my favourite would be spinach dish, then I also liked their potatoes with tomatoes and chilli, and also if they have on daily special their pumpkin dish. I do not mind the egg plant dish.

My favourite of all things here would be eating bread - esplly barhuta bread - and garliclly ones !!!!
